. vegan chocolate chip pumpkin oatmeal cookies .

by Amanda @ .running with spoons. on October 21, 2013

As a self-proclaimed cookie monster, it pains me to admit that I only have one recipe for cookies on my blog. Just one. BUT! Thanks to a quiet and somber Sunday afternoon, I now have two cookie recipes. Allow me to introduce you to the newest cookie to grace the Spoons family: vegan chocolate chip pumpkin oatmeal cookies…

Vegan Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

A few notes about these cookies…

First, they were very much accidentally vegan. What I mean is that I didn’t originally set out with the intention of making them vegan — a lack of eggs coupled with no motivation to head out to the store and buy some forced my hand and vegan cookies were born. Huzzah! The best part about vegan baking? Being able to enjoy raw cookie dough without the fear of food poisoning.

Second, I was originally planning to make iced pumpkin oatmeal cookies, but if you’ll look above and note the laziness I mentioned in point #1, you’ll realize that tossing in a handful of chocolate chips was infinitely easier than whipping up a 5-minute batch of icing… So, non-iced chocolate chip pumpkin oatmeal cookies were born, which is probably a blessing in disguise because everyone knows that chocolate chip oatmeal cookies are the best ones out there, and that pumpkin and chocolate make a killer combo. Win, win.

Third, this recipe makes 12 cookies. One dozen. You can go ahead and double or triple it if you want more, but if you’re anything like me, you get tired of eating the same thing after the third or fourth cookie/muffin/slice, so keeping batches small is the way to go. It also means more opportunity to bake new things.

Fourth, fifth, and sixth… These are delicious. I am obsessed. Go make them now.

You may notice that the recipe doesn’t call for any flax or chia “eggs” — this is because it doesn’t need any. The pumpkin does a good job at binding the ingredients together, while simultaneously adding a slight cakiness to the overall texture.

If you’re not a big fan of cakey cookies, you needn’t worry about not liking these guys. The fact that I was out of eggs was actually a blessing in disguise because eggs tend to add to the cakiness factor, so a lack of egg leads to a significantly less cakey cookie. What you’re left with is a cookie that’s wonderfully chewy on the outside, and become softer towards the centre. Perfection.

Are you a fan of raw cookie dough? Do you eat it even when eggs are involved?
Are you getting pumpkin’d out yet?

Chocolate is much better than icing (says my PMS inflicted self). It gets all ooey gooey and rich and amazing. Ahh. Also, love that these are egg-free. I never have eggs in the house, and it’s fabulous to not have to go out and buy any for a few cookies.

14 Sam @ Better With Sprinkles October 21, 2013 at 7:42 am

These do look pretty fantastic! Oatmeal and chocolate chip is the best way to go, especially when pumpkin is added to the mix.
And as for raw cookie dough? Let’s just say it’s a slight miracle that I’ve never gotten food poisoning (knock on wood). I remember as a kid at sleepovers a favourite ‘snack’ was pulling rolls of Pillsbury cookie dough out of the fridge and passing it around.
So basically, I should probably cook more vegan things so I’m less likely to make myself horribly sick with my love for raw dough.

Call me a rebel but I’ll eat cookie dough whenever…samolina or not!! However I would feel much safer eating vegan cookie dough! These cookies look AMAZING- have you considered submitting it to Food Gawker? Major, for lack of better term, food porn right here ;)! Canned pumpkin puree isn’t available in Mumbai but you are making me consider taking a few cans back to make these cookies there- let’s see what the luggage allowance situation is like when I start packing tonight! And if you are bored before you finish your batch may I suggest turning leftovers into ice cream sandwiches??

Yay! Cookies!:) Aren’t pumpkin and oatmeal just addictive in a cookie, but in a great way?:) SO much better than pumpkin oats in a bowl! I’m kinda sad mine are gone from my last batch- thanks for inspiring me to make more!:) Love the way pumpkin takes care of the eggs deal, even in an egg free baking success by accident!:) PS- what kind of camera do you have? These are great shots!

Cookies can be ridiculously tough to photograph — I agree! I end up just taking a lot of different shots, both planned and spontaneous, and then choose the ones that look the best. It usually takes a lot longer than my others though.

For me, it’s pumpkin season year round but it’s more acceptable once fall comes around for the year ;-) So no, I’m nowhere NEAR being pumpkin-ed out. BRING IT ON! And I will eat any and all cookie dough whether it has raw eggs or not. I’ve had a bit of a stomach ache far too many times from eating too much dough but I keep coming back for more. It’s just TOO good for me to pass up. Or maybe I just like living on the edge ;)

I love pumpkin in anything. Yet, I haven’t had anything with pumpkin in it, or even flavored with pumpkin. For shame. I hate opening up a can of pumpkin and only using a Tablespoon or 2 and having to toss the rest once it goes bad. I haven’t been in the mood to bake or cook anything lately. For shame!

Pumpkin’d out?! Is that even possible? Not for me ;). I just finished another spaghetti squash and when preparing one it lasts me for about four meals so I was a little worried about being over it afterwards but – no.
Either my mum didn’t warn us or my siblings and I ignored what she said and happily ate cookie dough in anyway even though it always had eggs back in the day. Eating raw dough is still my favourite part of baking only that nowadays it’s always egg-free/vegan so there’s nothing to worry about in the first place. Awesome that you made yours vegan, too – intentionally or not. They look great, too.

I love an easy and delicious cookie recipe! I think I have made similar cookies to this recipe but will def try yours out! I used to LOVE raw cookie dough until college, when I met my ex-husband (he was my boyfriend at the time) told me over and over how bad it is to eat cookie dough with the raw egg. He ruined my fun. Now, I sometimes make the eggless cookie dough that I use for chocolate truffles and can eat that raw without having to worry.

This recipe has me craving cookies right now- but I’ll suffice with the oats. I’m actually a fan of the softer cookies- the kabocha ones I experimented with last week came out really soft- but it did contain an egg ;)

We have these cookie dough packets in the supermarket where all you do is slice it up and bake- as a kid I may have gone through half of those before baking….so good- although mum used to always tell me if I ate raw cookie dough I’d get worms lol!

I wonder how these taste. So far the only pumpkin thing I’ve eaten is pudding. There’s always pumpkin pudding in the supermarket around Halloween and I love it.

As you know, I don’t eat eggs anymore..but I used to and that NEVER stopped me from wolfing down the raw dough. My mom would always tell me to stop..but I never listened. HA! You can imagine how much more I eat now without the eggs!! These cookies look SO GOOD!! I love pumpkinnnn! Job well done, and I am excited to give these a try.!

Well I need to make these soon… I’ll have to pick up some of the ingredients when I get groceries tomorrow. And pumpkin’d out?! No way…I’m actually craving a pumpkin chai from Caribou Coffee right now. =)

I’m certainly not pumpkined out yet. That will be awhile ;)

Cookie dough > Cookies. It’s that’s simple. And eggs or not eggs, I ALWAYS ate the cookie dough.

I ain’t skeered of any eggy cookie dough! But I’ll gladly take an egg-free one too! I don’t discriminate…not when it comes to cookies! ;) Your pictures are gorgeous, girl! Love the one of them all stacked up! A tower of pumpkin-filled deliciousness! Consider these added to the ever growing things to make from your blog list! I am ALL about some chewy (non-cakey) cookies! YUM!

And I’m just about finished with my THIRD jumbo can of pumpkin this month! I’m averaging a can a week and still not tired of it! Bring on the pumpkin!!

Do you think these would work with almond flour to make tem gluten free?

Reply

87 Amanda @ .running with spoons. October 30, 2013 at 7:38 pm

I’d imagine they’d still taste amazing, but I’m not sure if the texture would be the same. There’s no harm in experimenting, though! I actually want to get in to using more almond/coconut flour myself.

I SO want to make these!! Wondering if anyone has tried making a GF version of this cookie?

Reply

89 pause2shopdotcom November 4, 2013 at 4:47 pm

OMG! These are simply amazing!! I made two slight changes – I used steel cut oats (soaked first) and I subbed agave for the maple syrup. I doubled the recipe and got about 28 cookies. Simply wonderful!! THANK YOU so much for posting!!

90 daisy November 17, 2013 at 10:58 am

Can I sub the syrup with honey?

Would it be the exact same ratio…1/4 cup?

these look so good!

91 Amanda @ .running with spoons. November 17, 2013 at 11:36 am

You definitely could! And yup — same ratio.

92 Marta January 8, 2014 at 4:23 pm

Not bad… but I didn’t have chocolate chips, and like you, I didn’t feel like going to the store so I added peanut butter and walnuts. Soooo delicious!!
Isn’t it great when laziness pays off?

Being able to lick bowls clean while baking is one of my favorite things about vegan baking. Oh. and not having allergic reactions to dairy / eggs anymore. That ranks up there high too. :)

Can I use spelt flour instead of whole wheat?

Absolutely! Any whole grain flour should be fine :)

Recipe was dry and even after adding more pumpkin, vanilla and syrup I could barely make a cookie. I hoped they would melt together but they came out dry. I followed recipe exactly before adding more wet ingredients. They came out dry and not moist and crumbling apart. What went wrong?
